impose their dark ideology on others, especially on women and girls who are fighting to control much of the middle east today and who seek to wage perpetual war on the west. >> joining me now, a man who knows quite a lot about mitt romney's views on all this, norm coleman, advisor to the romney campaign on foreign policy and former senator from minnesota. welcome to you, senator. >> piers, great to be with you today. >> let's start with this extraordinary poll today. the pew poll showing that your man, mitt romney, has sawed into the lead and quite comfortably. what do you make of that? >> well, certainly the debate was a defining moment in this campaign, but i think it's pretty simple. mitt romney has a plan, has a plan to grow jobs, he articulated a plan today for strong american foreign policy and the president doesn't have a plan, doesn't have a record. when you don't have a record, you don't have a plan, you go against somebody who has a record of building jobs and has a plan, i think you're seeing what you're seeing in the pew poll.
